At the end of this hike you come to Morning Glory Natural Bridge. The arch is only separated from the cliff behind it by 15 feet, so it is not as spectacular or photogenic as some other arches in the area that are not as big. When you stand directly underneath the span 75 feet above you, it is a very impressive piece of rock. On the list it is ranked 5th largest span in the world.

Incredible scenery and diversity in this relatively easy hike. Trail starts along the creek and cross crosses it before gaining some altitude. Finish up hiking up along a larger canyon until you reach the arch. Although i crossed the river about 4-5 times I never got my feet wet. 45 min in and 40 min back

This was our favorite hike for this Moab trip! Super dog friendly! Lots of creek crossings but plenty of well placed rocks-didn't get wet. A couple little pools for dogs and kids to splash around in. Lots of shade. Pretty easy hike! Moab changed the trailhead name-I think it's called "Overlook" -something like that...but we just looked for the "morning glory sign" and knew it was the right one:) The Arch is amazing! Definitely a must do.

This is an absolutely beautiful hike. Extremely dog friendly and tons of water crossings. At the end is Morning Glory Arch and our dogs loved swimming in the pool at the end. An all around scenic hike with little elevation change.

The best hike of our trip to Moab! Water crossings and beautiful scenery. Easy walk with a few uphill spots near the end. The arch area is shaded and so worth the hike!!

Did not plan for the whole thing, but ended up going to the end. Really enjoyed going back and forth along the creek and sandy areas. There are shades and plants along the way, which made the trail cooler and all the more interesting. Reasonably well marked. A lot of people. It would be hard to get lost.
